I had a really early lunch at 11:15 a.m. on Saturday, June 21, to take advantage of the double points event that weekend. I was the only guest there and it was quiet, unlike other times of the day when I was there and it was really noisy, especially when there were groups around. The food was excellent and piping hot, and the portion was generous. I love their food and will certainly go back any day.

The restaurant was a tad too dark and too noisy for my liking. Otherwise, the food was excellent, as always, but unfortunately, the crab and lobster on the special menu for Mother's Day dinner, and my favourite dessert Tiramisu, were sold out. We weren't there that late - at 7:00 p.m.!

Took my daughter there for her 22nd birthday. Staff were very attentive and food was quite good. Great for a date night or with family and friends. Prices very reasonable.

We had three different pastas and loved them all. Seafood, meatball, and chicken. Generous portions for a great price. Also, enjoyed friendly service. Good for families, young and matured.

Consistently excellent service, top-notch Italian cuisine and the best pizza in town. A winner all around.

Service is good when you can find your server. It's a little chaotic. Food is good though. No major flub ups. Get a reservation for sure.

This is a good Italian restaurant with fair pricing. I had the veal in peppercorn sauce, which was quite good although the veal was a bit on the small side. My wife had the lobster and shrimp with fettuccine, which was very tasty. My daughter had the basic pizza, which had a tasty sweet tomato sauce. Good service, friendly, nice decor, good menu. I would go back to try the pasta. I like that it is local.

Food was mediocre, at best. Venue needs a refresh, very tired and worn. OK, but nothing special.
